Undoubtedly the best Death Metal act I have seen live! Extremely hard working and persistent. More power to them.

Undoubtedly the best, need to be higher in the list..

25 Third Eye Destruction (New Delhi)

Under-rated band. They deserve more...

An "experimental metal" band formed in jan 2013.
3ED's music is different.

This is not fair..
This band is so under-rated.
This band deserves to be in top 10.
Listen to their songs everyone!

30 Eccentric Pendulum (Bangalore)

One of the tightest bands in the country, humble musicians and they make intellectual music.

Definitely stands in another league with their brand of original music.
Music for musicians. And unpretentious.

In August 2011, the band represented India in the Wacken Metal Battle at W:O:A in Germany and were very well received by their international audience. - kurtcobain

31 Kaashmora (Bangalore)
32 Live Credence (Meghalaya)
33 Chaos (Kerala)

Hell of pure metal! Pure metal they've got!

The most authentic thrash metal album from India

Wonderful trash metal band. Violent Redemption, an excellent oringinal album from them. I personally no the drummer, what a guy and most of all what a band, JK thumbs up. In a place where trash metal is not appreciated by its folk, Chaos has proved them otherwise. Hats of to them and wish them the very best for the future.

Old school thrash.. Heavily inspired by the pioneers of thrash metal... Must be in the top 5.

34 Journey for Salvation (New Delhi)

An amazing blend of harsh and clean vocals, mind blowing riffs and excellent drum patterns. Their songs are out of this world.

Not sure if they are metal, but they sounded really tight when I saw them live in bhopal last year

35 Alien Gods (Arunachal Pradesh)

Without doubt the best death metal vocals in India. Extremely powerful on stage annihilating performance. Extreme squeals and extreme gutturals. The best in India. No doubt!

Already voted for Kryptos, but this band... if you haven't heard their "Animal party" you must try it once...saw them live once though not very energetic on stage but these guys deserve to be in top 10 or at least the best band out of northeast india

They really scream and they are superb

What the hell has anyone seem aliens play? Vote it up..way better than
